Join Genesis via ZOOM as we pray novenas with Sr. Jane Comerford, CSJ

 

You’re invited to join Sr. Jane Comerford, CSJ, to pray Novenas with various intentions (see below for more details).

 

What is a Novena?

“Novena” comes from the Latin word “novem”, meaning nine. A novena is a nine-day period of prayer (no more than 5-10 minutes per session) to call upon God for special graces, petitions, or in praise.

 

How do I pray a Novena?

Sr. Jane Comerford will lead you in the brief prayer for each day which will be no more than 5-10 minutes per session. It is not necessary to pray at the same time every day or to pray the rosary in conjunction with the novena but you are always welcome to add those prayers if you want to.

 

What if I miss a day?

It’s okay! We suggest you either say two prayers in one day, one for the day you missed plus the current day, or just don’t sweat it and continue with the current day. There are no consequences and no expectations!
